During the long weekend that was the Good Friday weekend that was in April, we did the crazy spontaneous.
We booked a budget flight and got onto to the plane, away to KL for a 1D1N.
Yes, we left the country for a one-day-one-night spontaneous family getaway.
And it was such a fun one with everyone in tow, helper included.
We departed for KL on a 4.30pm flight on Saturday, arrived in KL at 5.30pm, took the KLIA Express to KL Sentral. From there we walked to Le Meridien where we got two rooms with an awesome city view, and then headed to Jalan Alor for dinner.
Back at the hotel room late at night, my husband sprang me a birthday surprise, and the kids and I were on an all-time high. They soaked in the warm water in the tub. The adults soaked in the city’s night view from the hotel window. By the time we crashed, it was close to midnight.
The next morning, we checked out and took a taxi to Seremban to meet with family, had lunch, and was back at the KL airport by 3pm, and back in Singapore – 3 hours later.
All with one big duffel bag and a huge dose of a sense of adventure.
Were we tired? Not at all. We were adrenaline-charged by this sudden burst of spontaneity.
For the kids, it was all about new sights and sounds, and non-stop eating.
For the husband and I, it was all about holding hands, which we haven’t done for the longest time.
For the family, it was all about experiencing a foreign land together and filling one memory page at a time, moving around from place to place and taking a flight together, watching the clouds and sunsets and pretending we were cruising through a billowing sea of cotton candy.
We would do this again in a heartbeat, this crazy spontaneous!
